This year’s 1,000 Acts of Kindness Campaign kick off is going to work a little differently… There will be no dropping in here and there – this year it’s all or nothing!
You either start a Ripple of Kindness by participating in the Ripple Tour of Kindness or you don’t!! Don’t get me wrong. There’s still plenty of opportunities throughout the month of October to do kindness and even – consistent with this year’s theme of A Ripple of Kindness- START a Ripple of Kindness!!
But like I said.. The Kick off is different this year. In the past, it’s been a come one, come all type soiree, with freedom to come and go as you please. This year, it’s come one, come all – but if you come, you’re stuck. Because we’ll be moving. Because we’ll be on a bus!!
YES! This year’s 1,000 Acts of Kindness campaign kick off will be the Ripple Tour of Kindness. A bus full of Kindness-Doers will travel to 5 London locations spreading smiles, kind acts and items of great need to these locations! The Ripple Tour of Kindness will sweep through the City of London in a brush of kindness. This year we’re painting the town Green and White!!
The stops are a surprise!! There are hints here and there but for the most part, I’ve kept it pretty well under wraps, which is a wonderful and surprising accomplishment for me!! All I’ll tell you is our LAST stop of the afternoon will be Canadian Blood Services where Kindness-Doers will be donating much needed blood to our local blood bank! Did you know it takes 5 kind individuals to donate blood to save ONE person?? Let’s save a thousand this month!!
The Ripple Bus Tour will leave LUSO Community Services at 1193 Oxford Street East at 3:00pm and will return to the same location on or before 7:00pm, pending our fantastic adventure’s timeline!!
Thank you LONDON for the opportunity to run another great 1,000 Acts of Kindness Campaign!! Please submit your Acts of Kindness HERE or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
